This is the best recipe for Jiffy creamed corn casserole & it is so easy. It's silky smooth and satisfies the summer craving for sweet corn on the cob any time of year. Inspired by my grandmother's traditional corn pudding, this canned corn and Jiffy cornbread casserole is a quick version of a Southern classic. For added heat, I've included green chilies, making this creamed corn casserole irresistibly delicious.
This side dish casserole is both sweet and spicy with a combination of green chiles & canned sweet corn. It is a version of Paula Deen's corn casserole. I simply swap out the cheese for some chiles & the flavor just explodes!
It is soft, moist, spicy, and similar to Chevy's corn pudding if you ever have had it. It is the perfect side for soups, salads, bbq meats, and my Slow Cooker Beef & Bacon Chili.
Corn Casserole Can be Made Ahead of Time
This easy recipe can be assembled ahead of time to bake later. You can also bake this corn pudding recipe and warm it up later. It is also one of my family's favorites. They eat seconds and are happy to eat leftovers.
To make a large batch, you can easily double this recipe. I recommend baking it in two casserole dishes versus a single large one. That will ensure it bakes through the center properly.
Ingredients for Jiffy Corn Casserole
When baking homemade corn casserole, you will need some pantry & refrigerator staples. The recipe starts with common items such as eggs, butter, salt, and pepper. This recipe uses a shortcut ingredient too, Jiffy corn muffin mix. Then add the canned corn, creamed corn, sour cream, and green chiles.
I consider this a "half scratch" recipe. For me, "half scratch" is where home-cooked meets ready-made, such as the corn muffin mix in this recipe. It is an easy recipe with tons of homemade tastes.

How to Make Corn Casserole with Jiffy Mix
Here are the steps needed to make this easy green chile corn casserole recipe. It mixes in one bowl and is ready in just 30 minutes.

HINT: I like to use this Pyrex casserole dish which is 11x7x1.5". See the section below on how this trick saves baking time!
This makes a large amount. You will want to prepare a 11x7x1.5" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Next, pour the creamed corn mixture into the baking dish. Spread it out so it is even. It should fill the dish up almost to the top.
What Size Pan to Use?
I like to use a shallow dish when baking corn casserole versus a deep dish. It allows the batter to spread out more which means it cooks faster in the oven. This saves about 15 minutes of cooking time. Plus it is easier to cut squares and serve compared to scooping it out of a deep-dish pan.
The time and temperature in the recipe card is for an 11x7x1.5" dish. You can also use a 9x13 baking dish, which should be done baking in 40 minutes.
All of these great tips are shared in the post. But these are so good and important they are worth mentioning again so you don't miss them.
- If desired, prepare the batter ahead of time & refrigerate it to bake later.
- Use a shallow 11x7x1.5" baking dish.
- Let cool before cutting into squares.

Here are answers to some common questions. I hope you find what you need but if not, you are always welcome to send me a comment and I will get back to you.
There are recipes out there for making a similar recipe in a slow cooker. This is not that type of recipe. This recipe is baked in the oven. I have not tested these ingredients in any other cooking method.
If you don't have creamed corn, you can use a substitute and still make corn casserole. I suggest using regular canned corn & alter it a bit.
Only drain half the liquid from the canned corn. Then add the liquid and ½ the corn to a blender or food processor and pulse quickly for a few seconds. This will make a nice creamy corn mixture & stir it with the remaining corn pieces and add into the recipe as directed.
Jiffy Creamed Corn Casserole
- 1 8.5oz box Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
- 1 15oz can whole kernel corn drained
- 1 15oz can cream-style corn
- ½ C sour cream
- ½ C butter melted
- 3 eggs
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper

- Preheat oven to 375˚
- Grease a 2-quart casserole dish, I prefer the 11x7x1.5″ pan and the cooking time reflects this size.
- In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. If you want only part of the casserole to have green chiles, leave them out in this step and just sprinkle them on the top at the end.
- Pour the mixture into the casserole dish and spread evenly. Top with green chiles in this step if you did not mix them in already.
- Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges.
- Let set about 5 minutes before serving.
